They're new wheels and tires. Original price is $1,350. He won't sell them for less than $1,300.
What a clown. No one will pay that for them.

He's a clown alright...for listing Carrera S wheels as Cayman wheels. Arguably he's only screwing himself as I'd figure the market for the 19 Carrera S wheels to be better. It also doesn't help that he stuck crap tires on them.

Ha! Didn't even catch that myself.
As for the tires, SPTs aren't BAD, they're just not PS2s or some other top-tier tire. They're on par with ES 100s and a great value.

Let me count the ways:

1. He says they came off his "RIP 02 S". So did the car get in a wreck?
2. He says they're "BRAND NEW". Uh, didn't you just say they came off your '02? Hopefully not your RIP '02!
3. They're "Carrera S"-style wheels, not "Cayman wheels".
4. Kumho Ecstas, not a high-dollar tire, not OEM.
5. Made in Italy. These are not OEM wheels.
6. Those are not the 987 colored crest center caps, those are the smaller, older ones.
7. These wheels are $799 on eBay, brand new. So does that mean the tires were $550 if he got the package for $1350? The guy on eBay seems to want $1599 for that package.
8. With 225/35/ZR19 tires, you're looking at a pre-987-size tire. They should be 235/35 in the front for 987, so it's the wrong tires if you want it for your Cayman and certainly not the right size for "all Porsche Boxsters".

Buy my wheels instead.
